Zap Pow is one of the Reggae pioneer bands that had number one hits in Jamaica in the 60's and 1970's  . This song was just introduced to the band while I was in the studio. This was the first run after the band only heard the tune a few times I will post the song once it's fully complete so you can see how a song progresses from paper, into the studio and after the musician put their own style and riffs into the song. A creative masterpiece when done. ZAP POW. 4. 1. 3. Zap Pow rehearsals.

Zap Pow is a Jamaican reggae band, founded by singer/bassist Michael Williams aka Mikey Zappow and guitarist Dwight Pinkney.
